For those seeking advice:I get loads of people asking me how to prepare for a job or get started in the design and visualization business and / or what schools to attend. I wish I could be more helpful.For those seeking advice:4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Something you need to understand is that I'm almost 51 years old. So, I have no contemporary schooling advice. All my formal schooling (late 70's early 80's) was completed well before PC's and digital art. I began my career with traditional media and all my digital skills are self taught. Therefore, I really have no idea in 2012, what the great digital art and design schools are and what the best path is for a young person interested in the trade. I'm not being a jerk, it's just that I'm not seeking a entry level job or looking for classes.
I will say that in this biz, it's more important what you can DO -vs- where you went to school. You can complete a curriculum and not learn a thing, and you can learn loads outside of a classroom. A strong portfolio speaks volumes. There are 15 year old

SORRY TO SCREAM WITH YOU GUYS,I'M NOT OKAY,I'M A BIT SAD,because someone very closed to me in my family died today.
Hmmm... Interesting.So this morning I receive notification from a no-reply administrative account here at dA than one of my deviations has been removed in response to a DMCA copyright violation claim.Hmmm... Interesting.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The artwork in dispute was amusingly enough my very first auto vexeI uploaded back in 2004. A very cartoony Orange Acura RSX, based partly on a die cast toy that I took my own photograph of. The resulting art looks very little like the toy car to begin with, and was produced by a toy manufacturer that seems to be no longer in business much less offering the product for sale.
So who's the entity with the beef? Honestly, I have no idea. They're not identified in the complaint at all. The defunct toy-maker? Acura? Jeez, I've no idea. Either way, it seems that 9 years after the fact, someone is zealously defending a design that neither of them fucking make any more.
The recourse is to dispute the claim, but the process of dispute puts all the onus on me. The process states: "Under the Digital Millennium Copyrigh

Road Rumble: Ford CapriRoad Rumble: Ford Capri6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Here we have it, Britain's version of the Mustang!
When I was a kid in the 90's, everyone who was a fan of British motorcars (e.g. anyone who wasn't pining for a Lamborghini) mentioned constantly the Ford Capri, and even though it went out of production a good 5 years before I was born, the car continued to hold its shock value even to this day due to its delinquent, rebellious nature.
What's the story? Basically in the mid-1960's the world of British society was going through massive change. The borders of social class were becoming blurred, and new technology mixed with new music and a new take on life meant that the teens of this era wanted something more than their flaky Humber's and Austin 1100's as their set of wheels. To impress the ladies and to give themselves an identity in this raunchy new world of rebelliousness, these teens wanted something both powerful and sexy. Being American certainly helps too.

Congratulations to :icondeathgoddess231: who won the giveaway.
For those that didn't win; keep following my journals.
There are more giveaways and features coming in the near future
Like some of my old watchers know, I have a premium membership giveaway for watchers at the end of every year.
In most of the previous giveaways, I always asked my followers for a good reason why they'd want a premium membership. I used to read all of the messages, and picked the one that touched me most.
However, with the current amount of watchers and messages I get on a daily basis, I realize this will be hard to keep track of. Let alone picking just a one from that huge group of people. Because I'm sure there are many of you that have interesting story's, and all of you have your reasons to want such a membership.
That's why, this year, I'm going to do it in a different way.
If you want to join, read along!

Last week's Autumn Couplets Contest was a ton of fun! We got to see a few different sides of fall and what each of you love about that season! Spoiler alert: A lot of you guys like leaves.
Here are your winners!
When the world vanishes in red and brown,
cheer because autumn has taken its crown.
Autumn's maiden unfurls when golden leaves sprawl,
And concrete streets drown in leaf's glorious fall.
Thanksgiving dinner, so much food I'm stuffed,
But too full for dessert? Now that's a bluff.

StoryHi Guys,Story2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I think it's time I told my story.
My name is Lani, and I am 17 years old. At the age of 14, I was cyber abused by a guy who thought it was amusing to force me to do things on webcam for his entertainment, using the lack of trust between my parents and I as a form of blackmail. I have never gotten over this.
I have been a self harmer for three years, and in that time attempted suicide 7 times, however never bad enough to end up in A&E. This has made me afraid to take medication and even when I am in extreme pain, I will be reluctant to take any form of painkiller. A year ago, I met a man who I thought could change my life. But in the end, he ended up making my situation worse because I wanted to do all I could to help him, but you can't help someone who didn't want to be helped. This made me suicidal, and made it that I had to see a therapist, whom proved that I had the symptoms of clinical depression. I couldn't eat without being ill, I could

I decided to up the ante this week and do a PM giveaway too Each month, I will try to give out 2 or more memberships to people! Read the thumb for more info. All big things start small, so this time it'll only be a 1 month membership. But next time, I hope i can make it a 3 month one! Or just give out 2 1-month ones. But trust me, you can do a LOT with a 1 month premium membership. Believe it when I say that if it wasn't for my first premium, I could never have done all these giveaways you see today. Anyway, here's what you need to do to enter: How to Enter: 1. Add this journal to your faves. 1a. Comment below why you want it.
